This oldest continuously running miniature railway in the country remains a favorite not only with train enthusiasts, but with families with kids and everyone else wishing to add a bit of old-fashioned fun to their vacation. Weather permitting, trains run generally from Easter to the end of September on the weekends.

  • Had a great time visiting the railway with my 5 year old son who is very interested in trains. The volunteers are fantastic. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about explaining how the trains worked with us and showing us other trains in the little engine shed. Highly recommend to those with who love trains!! Couldn't believe it wasn't busier!
  • Fantastic, great friendly guys, brilliant wee trains. Kids love it and they do a brilliant little engineers course. Can't recommend this enough.
